The best turf grass for golf courses on Vancouver Island and the Vancouver Lower Mainland is the Perennial Ryegrass. It thrives well in our temperate rainforest climate and is versatile, robust and lush-looking sod!

Kentucky Bluegrass is ideal for golf courses in the BC Interior and Alberta, where the climate is more extreme. The drier soils in these regions require a hardier grass, like the Kentucky Bluegrass, to better resist drought and disease.

Custom Grown Golf Turf

Whether for fairways, tee boxes or putting greens, Western Turf Farms can grow custom sod that meets your custom preferences and specifications for your golf course. You can choose the grass type and blend, growing medium, root zone fibre reinforcement, thickness, as well as the final cutting height at delivery time. We can create a custom turf blend from any of the seeds that we use, or we can use the seed and growing products that you provide to us. To grow quality custom sod, please plan ahead for 8 to 12 months depending on the type of grass.

Golf Turf Delivery

For golf courses across BC and Alberta, we cut and deliver sod roll size as:

  • Standard sod rolls 2ft wide (4.5ft long = 1 sq yard or 9 sq ft).
  • Big sod rolls 2 ft or 4 ft wide, up to 126 ft long (28 – 56 sq yards).

We can also provide thick cut sod rolls of 3/4-1 inch of depth for fast and critical course repairs. To make sure your golf turf gets the best start, we harvest your sod order on the day of delivery and we recommend that you install it the same day.

  • Sod rolls are delivered on pallets.
  • Large fleet of trucks equipped with fork lifts for fast unloading.
  • Pallets can be transferred to the course with a bobcat.
If you prefer to pick up your sod order from our farms, please make an appointment when ordering. Pickup times are between 7:30 AM and 9:00 AM (Monday to Friday) at our two locations: Abbotsford Turf Farm – 39183 No.5 Rd or Langley Turf Farm – 7897 240 Street (summer only) at the marked area.

Before choosing the pickup option, please consider the maximum load of your truck or trailer and these factors:

  • One pallet (4 sq ft) fits up to 90 sod rolls (765 sq ft)
  • One full pallet can weigh up to 3,600 lbs or 1,800 kg (less in dry weather).
Pallets can be returned between 7:30 AM and 4:00 PM at either our Abbotsford Turf Farm or our Langley Turf Farm.

 

Preparing for Golf Turf Installation and Maintenance

To give you the best options for your golf turf projects, we offer a variety of additional products, services and resources to prepare you for golf turf installation and maintenance. We deliver sand and soil for topdressing, and we can also provide topdressing application equipment with a trained operator if required.

Our washed sand for top dressing is produced from high quality sand and gravel reserves in the Lower Mainland. This is environmentally clean sand with a consistent and uniform particle size distribution that is superior to most local sand pits. The sand is treated in a sand-processing wash plant to meet the most restrictive standards of the construction industry and monitored under a Quality Assurance Program.
As a general rule, topdressing material should closely match the composition of the existing soil profile. Topdressing also may be used to modify the soil profile, though this takes multiple applications over a number of years. The use of varying topdressing materials can result in a problem of layering, with different textured soils stacked in layers within the soil profile. We offer a variety of soil and sand to match nearly any composition.

We offer all of our sod in standard or big rolls, and also provide big roll installation equipment with trained installers.

  • Standard rolls of 2ft wide (4.5 ft long = 1 sq yard or 9 sq ft).
  • Large rolls 2 or 4ft wide, up to 125ft long (28 – 56 sq yards).
Overseeding is an important part of maintaining any high traffic areas, extending the life and play time. We provide all of our seed blends in 25 kg bags for overseeding your golf courses. If you don’t have the staff or the equipment, we can provide this as a service.
